"My Air Force daughter wanted a quick and easy wedding to her Air Force (now)husband. Hitching Post provided just that! Felt like my Nana performed the ceremony, which made it even better! They're happy and we have no complaints. Went to court house next day and they got the proof they needed to provide to the military. Everything was filed with the state immediately."

"Great place. Very small chapel to be married in. Easy to schedule, well priced. Very friendly staff and a good reception process. Nice variety of options as well. The Minister is a very smooth speaker, very talented and excellent at setting the mood. Honestly interesting to see I'm action, he's really very good."

Ciara H.

"My husband and I loved getting married here. The Hitching Post is small enough that we were not overwhelmed during our ceremony and we could have an intimate occasion with our closest family and friends. Our ceremony felt very personal and not at all rushed or generic. I would get married here again in a heartbeat!"
